Manchester United has agreed personal terms with Odion Ighalo to extend his time in England beyond the summer.

The twenty-time English champions were believed to have made a bid in the region of fifteen million pounds, which is the asking price from Shanghai Shenhua FC.

Ighalo would miss out on a lucrative four hundred thousand pounds-a-week salary being offered by his Chinese side if he eventually signs a new deal with the Old Trafford outfit.

The former Nigeria international had earlier hinted that he would love to spend more time at United, his boyhood club, adding that he has been impressed with structure available there.
